McLaren driver Jenson Button says that he has arrived in Melbourne in happy mood and he expecting McLaren will made a good progress in Australian GP with new MP4-27.

“Arriving in Melbourne I’m a lot happier than I was last year. We’ve had a good winter in terms of reliability most of the time, except for my final day when the car had a hydraulics issue,” he said.

“But I feel we have made good progress with the car, and there’s nothing I’m afraid of with its balance. It listens to changes which is really important. So I’m very happy with the direction we’ve taken and with the package we have on the car, very happy, and I’m happy with what we’ve achieved so far.

“As long as we find a good set-up with the new package we should be looking pretty good for the first race. So it’s been a really good winter. The whole team will say the same in terms of what’s been happening with the car.”

“I feel in a very good place with the team, that I’ve a great bunch of engineers and mechanics around me. There’s nothing I would look at and say, ‘that’s an area where we are weak’ or ‘maybe that could be better’. It’s all gone right at the moment, Button said.”

“It’s been very difficult to read pace over the winter because a lot of teams have been playing their cards close to their chests. I think it’s going to be extremely close, and I can’t wait to find out where we sit in the pecking order.” He added.
